We encourage all parents to spend time reading to and with your child. One way to prevent your child from losing any of the skills and knowledge acquired in school is by reading daily.
Provide quiet time for your child to read to him/herself and to listen to you read a story every day. When you or your child has completed a book, take the time to ask your child questions about the story.
- Who are the main characters?
- What can you tell me about the characters?
- Where does the story take place?
- If their characters encountered a problem, how did he/she solve it?
- What did the story remind you of or make you think about?
- What was your favorite part of the story and why?
Anytime provides a wonderful opportunity for you to share the experience with your child.
